Kalkwasser - German for "limewater," it is a highly concentrated solution of calcium hydroxide
-"food grade" lime daw sya ayon dito https://ph.answers.yahoo.com/question/i ... 505AAB9ZV1

Apog -
- sabi dito calcium carbonate sya http://www.pinoyexchange.com/forums/sho ... p?t=282127
- also called as "agricultural lime" http://tl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apog
- agricultural lime is made of calcium carbonate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agricultural_lime

magkaiba ata sila.
hope that helps.

yep 1tsp apog per gallon of freshwater.. I have 75g DT as well. you will not use it all at once. yung 5g nayun tumatagal sakin ng mga less than 2 weeks.. use it for everyday top off on your tank. kung gaano lang kadami yung nag evaporate everyday ganun lang din kadami yung sasalin mo na apog/freshwater mixed.

hindi ko alam kung may formula lol pero ang ginawa ko may mark yung sump ko kung saan yung normal level nung water.. so pag yung water level ay below na dun sa mark na nilagay ko, ayun mag top off na ko.. tapos dun ko masusukat kung hanggang saan lang idadagdag ko tignan ko lang dun sa mark kung sakto na ulit dun..
